    Ok so GREEN ACORNS vs BROWN ACORNS, what was the word on that??


    I feed both, I pick the green ones clean from my parent's tree - all the ones I can reach.

    Then I gather the brown ones later as they fall daily.
    (They do not use any type of pesticide in their yard, so I trust the source)

    My squirrels like both, and I thought both were safe.

    It is VERY CONFUSING sometimes to hear such differing opinions.
    I don't doubt that each person is sincere in offering their knowledge,
    but it has been very frustrating over the years when dealing with
    different rehabbers and experts and getting opposing advice.

    SIGH.

    I try to trust my instincts most of all, be logical about things, and take all advice in consideration, including the source.

    But back to my question...GREEN or BROWN?
    I took a poll back there...5 out of 5 squirrels say....


    ...WE LIKE THEM ALL!!!
    Green, Brown, Big, Small, Soft Shell, Hard Shell...keep em coming!

    My wilds are so funny. They creep up to get a nut in the shell from a dish, on belly, ears back, tippy-toeing, and hesitant, back and forth back and forth, and then. . .snatch! Then they dash away TWO FEET and stop for about 6 SECONDS to inspect the nut all over with their tongue, turning it over and over in their hands. I think they are looking for cracks or holes. They can't see up close, so they inspect it with their tongues. But, I have to laugh at them, because after all that creeping and sneaking, they sit there like little ducks, perfect for the snatching, looking oblivious, while they decide if it is a good one or not. If they decide it is good, they dash up the tree with it. If not, they throw it down and creep and sneak back for another.

    Well, there you have it. They like them all and apparently are the cutest nut inspectors ever!
